yeah, sometimes it is hard to see things from the buyer’s perspective especially when authors are worried about piracy.

And also remember that it’s hard to see things from the AdRev registered composer’s perspective, especially when authors are worried about upsetting a customer.

In both instances, it’s hard to smell the smoke when close to the fire, so we should all try and work through this amicably until we’ve found a resolve we’re all happy with.

The occasional animosity I’ve been seeing on this thread recently has me concerned, and we seriously don’t want this thread locked down.

I’m using the information within this thread when speaking to AdRev so it’s very important we keep the discussion going without attacking or ostracising others who happen have a different point of view.

Answer me this, if AdRev offered a payed service to do this for composers would you pay for it ?

If it was financially viable to my business, then of course. I want to protect my assets, as any serious business would.

Tell me what you understand exclusivity of rights.to be.

Trick question? :confused:

Meaning the copyrights are owned by one entity.

Sorry you couldn’t be more wrong

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exclusive_right

Is a relatively simple explanation.

Do you this Universal, Warner Chapell, Megatrax, Extreme Music “own” the copyright to all the tracks they have in AdRev ? think about it ?

Oh I dunno. I’m not a copyright lawyer and this doesn’t directly concern my material anyway. But if you want to disappear down that rabbit warren of legalese and red tape, be my guest! :)

Art-of-Sound SAYS YouTube Content ID Administration Team demanded from AdRev to terminate my account and remove my songs from the system due to YouTube policy that doesn’t allow certain types of music, including creative commons and non-exclusive royalty free music, As it turns out here, music licensed without exclusivity, i.e. to multiple licensees, does not qualify for content ID.

Above link and quote by Art of Sound

To all those in this thread that doubted what I said about not being in Content id without exclusivity. Non ex with multiple licensees does not qualify for Content id or AdRev as shown by Art of Sound. It is there in very plain english on YT FAQ and here is evidence from an author here.

I spoke personally with AdRev straight after that was posted.

YouTube do not allow music that is being given away for free under Creative Commons Licenses to be digitally fingerprinted. This is because YT users were trying to monetize their videos with a License type that doesn’t allow this, yet permits users to use the music in any situation.

The ‘exclusivity’ YouTube/ContentID refer to is exclusivity of rights. ie. Before music can be digitally fingerprinted, the registrant must exclusively own all rights to the music, and it is not partly or wholly owned by another party.

Its a system designed for Major catalogue holders to monetise YT vids when there is Beyonce on the radio in the background, its pennies but a lot of them.

It’s actually a system that ALL copyright owners (including including Uncle John and his banjo) can utilise to monitor, administer and monetize unauthorised uses of their property on YouTube.

If you are so uptight about copyright protection get on high horses to Envato about PRO registration, far more important an issue for most authors here.

Just as important I’d say. And PRO registration has little to nothing to do with copyright protection and obviously a separate issue.

...so, if you are implying that just because AJ gives a buyer a license certificate they should somehow understand that they will receive a YouTube copyright notice that they must dispute…well, that is quite a stretch! that should be spelled out in every purchase of AdReved tracks.

The meaning and purpose of licenses (the very thing buyers are purchasing) should be spelled out in every purchase of AudioJungle tracks.

Thanks PurpleFroggy
Oh man, why do so many people call me PurpleFrog? Is it because I’m French? Almost wish I had gone with that username in the first place. Would have helped my branding and visual identity. :D

Haha, I’ve got to be honest with you Pierre, but on a few occasions I’ve very nearly referred to you as PurpleFrog! And absolutely nothing to do with you being French either!

I think it’s a typoglycemic illusion with your username. You have your words joined in the username and the eye is taking the ‘r’ from purple and thus the brain completing the name as ‘PurpleFrog’. I used to work in graphic design and we dealt with things like this all the time! :)

I don’t understand your confusion…....

Thanks for the reply. Didn’t really answer my question, but thank you all the same.

I’ll be asking other VPs I work with the same question (I have lots to reach out to) so will be interesting to hear their responses.

The trouble is that you guys are now using these licenses as some kind of software serial code that must be punched in somewhere to release rights to use the music.

Absolutely right we are! This should have been implemented years ago and would’ve avoided this whole fiasco to begin with.

I’m sorry, but that simply isn’t true. It isn’t that I don’t want to, it’s that somewhere out there is a huge mess of dozens of videos we created, with music licenses properly purchased in good faith, and some of you are earning money from the adverts that are popping up on them.

Still trying to look at things from your perspective here as it’s really quite important to those of us already on AdRev to try and see things from both sides.

But one thing I’m genuinely curious to hear and would be quite useful to know is, as a buyer, what you thought the licenses you had been purchasing were supposed to be used for? ie. for what purpose do you believe they serve?
